Queen Subjected to New Insult in New Zealand

February 25, 1986|United Press International

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — A day after protesters pelted her with eggs, a well-built native Maori today bared his tattooed buttocks at Queen Elizabeth II's motorcade in an ancient warrior insult over a 146-year-old treaty.

But police said the queen probably did not see the protest because her Rolls-Royce had passed by the man moments before he lifted his grass skirt in the provincial city of Napier.
